The opensource codecs in mplayer *should* have similar quality in decoding divx5 streams as the divx4linux lib (and I think they are from a few versions past preferred to the divx4linux one when mplayer picks a codec to use). Encoding however in divx5 is another issue .. you need divx4linux. Guess we could only depend on divx4linux if mencoder is build ... As for win32codes ... most users will probably want this. -- Martin Schlemmer Gentoo Linux Developer, Desktop/System Team Developer Cape Town, South Africa
